Democrats need just nine seats to take the majority in the Texas House of Representatives for the first time in nearly 20 years. With nearly two dozen seats in play, we can win in 2020 – with your help.
I cannot stress enough how much there is at stake. With once-a-decade redistricting happening in 2021, flipping these seats will change our state’s course for the next decade and beyond.
A Democratic House will pass Medicaid expansion providing health care access to more than one million Texans. A Democratic House will defeat the unending Republican attacks on voter participation, a woman’s right to choose and equality. And a Democratic House will make public education the top priority every year, for every Texas child.
As Chair of the Texas House Democratic Caucus, I have committed to do everything in my power to win the House and to help our campaign arm – the Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee (HDCC) – fund these races and help our incredible lineup of candidates across the state win.
I am not alone in this effort. We have a team of elected officials from across Texas helping – you may have received similar emails in the past few days from my colleagues in the House, state senators, members of Congress, mayors and others. There’s an incredible coalition supporting the HDCC’s efforts, but we can’t do it alone, we need your help.
In 2018, Texas Democrats made incredible strides, winning twelve seats in the Texas House, plus flipping two districts in both the state Senate and Congress. This was just a start — during this upcoming presidential election year, our gains will be even bigger.
Why is your help needed today? Tomorrow, December 31, is an important fundraising deadline and will help make sure Texas House Democrats have the resources we need to start the election year off right.
Will you join me in supporting the HDCC? At last count, they only need 455 more grassroots donors before January 1st to meet this critical goal.
